7 proven ways to get your ISO 27001 project on track

ISO 27001 compliance

  1. Do your research

Ditch the jargon and learn how to implement an ISMS (information security management system) in nine steps with our free guide. We’ve also got a handy pocket guide – Nine Steps to Success – An ISO 27001 Implementation Overview – that explains (in layman’s terms) how to develop and deploy an ISMS.

  1. Read the Standard

ISO/IEC 27001:2013 sets out the basic elements of an ISMS. For your project to be a success, it’s important to get your head around the details and understand what the Standard is all about. This might take time, but you’ll be going in blind without such knowledge.

  1. Learn from the experts

ISO 27001 certification

We’re no strangers to ISO 27001: our directors pioneered the world’s first ISMS certification project and we’ve helped hundreds of organisations prepare for and achieve certification to ISO 27001, so we know a thing or two about what it takes to succeed!

Learn how to put theory into practice by attending one of our ISO 27001 training courses. Available in a variety of formats, all of our courses have been designed by experts and are delivered by experienced trainers.

  1. Ditch the spreadsheets

When it comes to risk assessments, spreadsheets simply won’t cut it; a ‘one size fits all’ approach can’t accurately identify all the threats and vulnerabilities that could affect your organisation.

Get it right first time with risk assessment software designed to guide you through the entire risk assessment process. vsRisk™ includes a list of built-in threats and vulnerabilities for guidance and provides a set of required, auditable reports.

  1. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel

It might be hard to believe, but even consultants use pre-formatted templates for implementation projects. Rather than starting from scratch, save time and money and keep your project on track with our ISO 27001 documentation toolkit. Packed with policy templates, guidance and project management tools, it has helped more than 3,000 organisations to date.

  1. Train your staff

ISO 27001 staff training

Staff awareness training is critical to minimise errors and infractions caused by poorly informed employees. E-learning is quick, user-friendly, trackable and affordable, and because the results are automatically stored, you can pull them up whenever an auditor asks for them. Get your staff familiar with information security and ISO 27001 with our popular e-learning course.
